Altisource Asset Management Corporation Reports First Quarter 2022 Result (4/22/22)

Altisource Asset Management Corporation (“AAMC” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: AAMC) today announced financial and operating results for the first quarter of 2022.

First Quarter 2022 Highlights and Recent Developments

The Company announced the creation of the Alternative Lending Group (“ALG”) and approved an initial equity capital commitment of up to $40 million for the purchase and origination of alternative mortgage loans. The Company acquired a total commitment amount of $18.5 million in loans, of which $17.8 million was outstanding at March 31, 2022.

As of March 31, 2022, AAMC’s cash position was $54.3 million, which is net of the $17.8 million spent for the acquired loans.

The Company intends to bring a lawsuit against our former director, Nathaniel Redleaf, and Luxor Capital Group, LP and certain of its funds and managed accounts (collectively, “Luxor”), for among other things, breach of fiduciary duty, aiding and abetting breach of fiduciary duty, and breach of contract. The Company has taken steps to facilitate the filing of this lawsuit.

The Company has hired Jason Kopcak as President and Chief Operating Officer to lead ALG, among other responsibilities and is expected to join AAMC in May 2022. Mr. Kopcak was most recently at Morgan Stanley, joining in September 2018 as an Executive Director with Morgan Stanley’s residential mortgage team within Global Capital Markets. Prior to Morgan Stanley, Mr. Kopcak worked at Nomura, a global financial services group, from May 2012 until September 2018 in a similar capacity.

The Company also secured a right of first refusal with the technology company, ForumPay, to deploy crypto-enabled ATMs/Kiosks worldwide. AAMC has earmarked up to $2.0 million initially to fund both the acquisition of ATMs and build the operational capabilities of the business line.

The Company entered into a settlement agreement with two institutional investors of its Series A preferred shares. The Company paid the institutional investors approximately $665 thousand in cash in exchange for 5,788 Series A shares ($5.79 million of liquidation preference) and recognized a gain of approximately $5.1 million to Additional paid in capital in the first quarter of 2022.

“After a challenging 2021, management of the Company has established a strong foundation for its future growth,” stated Thomas K. McCarthy, Interim Chief Executive Officer, “and we are extremely fortunate to have hired Mr. Kopcak and expect with his expertise that we can execute on the ALG business plan in the form of bottom line profits while managing risk.”

First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

AAMC’s net loss to common shareholders for the first quarter of 2022 was $(3.7) million compared to net income of $5.9 million for the same period in 2021. Due to a $5.1 million gain on settlement of preferred shares, which was recorded directly to equity, but is included in the numerator of our earnings per share calculations, diluted earnings per share was $0.66 for the quarter, compared to $37.41 for the same period in 2021 which also included a $71.9 million gain on settlement of preferred shares.
